Jung Yonghwa, the front man for the band CNBLUE, has been increasing his popularity recently. With the successful wrap up of their promotions for “Ear Fun,” and the upcoming Japanese release of his last series “You’ve Fallen For Me (Heartstrings),” it seems like Jung Yonghwa could easily have his pick of dramas to act in while he fills his time between promotions.
However, this is the last thing that Yonghwa wants to do. Despite the fact that the other three members of the band are all taking in part in the acting industry (drummer Kang Minhyuk is appearing in “My Husband’s Got a Family,” guitarist Lee Jonghyun is in “A Gentleman’s Dignity,” and bassist Lee Jungshin is currently taking acting lessons), Yonghwa wants to take some time to focus on his musical career, at least until the end of the year.
A representative from Yonghwa’s label (FNC Entertainment) stated, “Jung Yonghwa wants to make a name for himself as a musician more than as an actor. As well as taking part in the band’s new album, CNBLUE will be busy touring abroad this year.”
Outside of working on his music, Yonghwa has also tried his hand at producing music. Which helped to launch the career of Korean-Japanese singer Juniel in Korea.
What do you think of Yonghwa’s choice to focus on music instead of acting?
